"Michael Sam's orientatin is no one elses business..."

Michael Sam plays in the NFL. Lots of people watch the NFL and therefore it is everybody's business.

"...it should not effect his NfL drafts chances."

Clearly many people disagree with this. Everything has to have limits.

"what he do behind when one else is around shouldnt affect him throwing a football."

He is a NFL player and there is no being the scenes. This argument is unsupported.

Reasons for voting decision: No BOP was given to either debater. PRO gave no reason or evidence to believe that sexual orientation is the business of other people, when at default it is a private matter. PRO plays the "majority card" but is an argumentative fallacy. Just because many people believe something does not believe it is true, so PRO fails to refute.

Reasons for voting decision: Con never gave his premises and pro made weak arguments. Nobody gets arguments. Neither gave sources that I'm counting. Pro had better S&G.

Reasons for voting decision: Con said it SHOULD not affect the draft, not that it won't. Also, Pro did not defend even close to adequately that it is the NFL's business. Pro has the big advantage being the last speaker of a 1 round debate, but did not effectively rebut Con's opening statement. Arguments to Con.
